It is almost Halloween!!! BOO!


It is Halloween week and I am sure that many of the children and adults in Tokyo are looking forward to the events on Halloween day. Everyone have a great time and be careful out there.


Last week’s assignment was a difficult one!

Could you get these proverbs?

  1. You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. – When you try to do something great, you’ll probably make a few people annoyed or angry. Don’t worry about those people; just focus on the good results.
  2. A watched pot never boils. – If something takes time to finish, don’t watch it too closely because it will seem like it’s taking forever.
  3. Actions speak louder than words.  –  Just saying that you’ll do something doesn’t mean much. Actually doing it is harder and more meaningful.
  4. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.  –  Don’t try to improve something that already works fairly well. You’ll probably end up causing new problems.
  5. Too many cooks spoil the broth.  –  When there are too many people trying to lead and give their opinions, it’s confusing and leads to bad results. Jobs and projects should have one or two strong leaders.
  6. Easy come, easy go.  –  When you get money quickly, like by winning it, it’s easy to spend it or lose it quickly as well.
  7. Necessity is the mother of invention.  –  When you’re really in need, you think of creative solutions to your problems.
  8. Familiarity breeds contempt.  –  When you’re around someone for too long, you get tired of them and annoyed by them.
  9. You can’t judge a book by its cover.  –  Things sometimes look different than they really are. A restaurant that looks old and small might have amazing food, for example.
  10. Two heads are better than one.  –  When two people cooperate with each other, they come up with better ideas.


Well, the challenge for this week is the following:


As I am sure you all know, transitive verbs take objects and intransitive verbs do not.  There are three commonly confused sets. They are:




Do you think you can explain the differences between them? Good luck and I look forward to hearing from you.
